Hi Everybody!

I leave for Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China, in 13 hours and I am so excited that I had to begin documenting right away! As you can tell, I’ve started this travel blog so that you can be with me as I begin my adventure in China and share in this experience with me! This will be the best way for me to update everyone on what I’ve been up to in Hohhot, and your feedback, well wishes, and support will help me adjust to my new life in a foreign country!

I hope to update my blog every few days, but I’m worried that I might not be able to reach it once I arrive in China. If this is the case, bear with me and hopefully within a week I’ll have figured out how to get around the internet barriers (I’ve seen other teachers in my area of China accomplish this during my research). If not, I’ll send you all the link to a blog that can work in my area!

My week in Toronto is ending and I am off on my adventure tomorrow. It all went by so quickly, I was feeling overwhelmed earlier. Lots of goodbyes, lots of memories, lots of tears. But my friend Maddie reminded me of the lyrics “You say goodbye, and I say hello”, and I feel as though I’m ready to take this leap and begin a new chapter in my life. I’ll miss all my friends and family in Canada, but it’s time for me to spread my wings and explore the world. It’s not an end, it’s a beginning!!

So until next time – BYE CANADA! Stay tuned, stay cool!

    Your friend is very wise. Imagine all the people you’ll be saying “hello” to soon.
    I sure hope your flight was not too taxing – sitting in a squishy seat for more than 12 hours is a lot to ask of your body! Looking forward to your blogs! I’m sure you’ll figure out a way to post.
